I came across your question and see that you may never have had a reply.
If you have this already worked out, then great! But if not, perhaps the
API wikis will be of interest:
The documentation is still in progress, but the main points are present
and the examples should be helpful. The general idea is that the LIMS
system should be able to communicate with Galaxy via the API.
If you have specific question about any unresolved issues around
LIMS/API integration, please send a brand new question (new email, new
thread, new subject) to the galaxy-dev mailing list and we will do our
best to offer (quicker!) help.
Our sincere apologies for the delayed reply,

I am exploring the possibility of using a local galaxy installation for
light bioinformatics on sequence data in the scope of an existing LIMS
system. Ideally I would like to be able to do the following
1. Push datasets from the LIMS to galaxy (directly into the user's
account or into a fresh temporary session)
2. Allow the user to perform tasks within galaxy, backtracking and
retrying as necessary.
3. Push the results along with the galaxy history (ideally converted to
a workflow) back to the LIMS
4. (Allow workflows stored in the LIMS to be pushed to Galaxy along
with further datasets or even completely automatic launch of these
workflows from within the LIMS)
Is this feasible? How much wrok would be required?
Since I am new to Galaxy (at least from the development side), I would
very much appreciate comments advice and pointers to documentation or
existing projects of a similar nature.
Thanks in advance,
